"Everyone should read the classics at least once, preferably instead of reading contemporary novels."

You know what the classics were when they were first published?

They were contemporary.

You know what contemporary novels will be called fifty to a hundred years from now?

Classics.

Do yourself a favor and just read. Read whatever floats your boat. YA, horror, urban fantasy, sci fi fantasy blend, chick lit, dystopian, literary...pick your genre and go for it. Mix it up and go for it. Graphic novels? They count.

Just read.

Sci-fi floats my boat. Especially ones that really work at the science part. I never met a modern novel (defined as "about relationships") that interested me. I'd rather read an encyclopedia. And sometimes I do...

I agree. I read everything and anything. Reading is like eating - sometimes you want a thick, juicy steak, sometimes you just want a greasy fast-food burger. With either, you end up nourished and satisfied.
